Absolutely amazing dish! i didnt brown the chicken ahead of time, i dont have time to do that, i followed all directions accepted for that. So i baked in the oven at 400 for 45 mins or so. I served with a side of rice.

The chicken was great! I sauteed minced garlic in the butter instead of adding garlic powder, I used spinach instead of broccoli (but I'm sure I'll love it with broccoli too) and instead of cheddar I used mexican blend cause that's what I had. And only to my chicken I sprinkled crushed red pepper cuause I love the heat. THANKS!!
